SXSW BBN 2nd Bracket - In-Flight Safety vs. Wakey! Wakey!

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to G Funky flight 314 from SXSW in Austin directly to your eyeballs. At this time, make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Also make sure your seat belt is correctly fastened and you have an alcoholic beverage in your hand. We advise you that as of this moment, any electronic equipment must be turned up as loud as possible. Thank you.

More Canadians... In-Flight Safety. At least they aren't from Newfoundland, amirite Bueno? This isn't the band your Mum warned you about. Take a heavy heaping of Snow Patrol, throw in a dash of Coldplay and maybe a sprinkling of Rise Against drumming (at times) you've got yourself a good, steady band.

And they are up against? Wakey! Wakey!
Frontman Mike Grubbs isn't all about the piano in his music, but he is kinda all about the piano. More emo than Ben Folds, less grumpy than Chris Martin, and ... hairier than Billy Joel. His lyrics are very much right out of the journal and tend to be about love in some form or fashion. That's all I got folks.

It's a toss up. I'm going to award it to Wakey! Wakey! just because of Mike's talent and it brings back fond memories of the sailors asleep on the floor of my apartment. Wakey wakey! Eggs and Bakey!
